The parking area and trailhead are not well marked and very easy to miss. No restrooms.
Need to Know
The trail leads through some boggy areas and is often wet. For these reasons, insect repellent and shoes with good traction are highly recommended.
In order to climb up Aziscohos, follow the red-blazed trail. For about the first mile or so the terrain is relatively flat, but is swampy, boggy, and narrow. After this mile, the trail begins to climb. This section of the trail is particularly washed out with many wet, exposed roots and rocks. This continues to climb for a little over a half of a mile.
For the last 0.1 miles or so, there are some large rocks that require minor scrambling. The trail ends at the top of the mountain at the foundation of an old fire tower. This vantage point gives almost 360-degree views of the surrounding area which includes other mountains and three lakes. The view from the top makes the less than well-maintained trail absolutely worth it.
